    With fastpasses, are the fastpasses for spectacles such as fireworks or light shows separate or do they count towards the 3 fastpasses allowed?

    Hello Paul, and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I am thrilled to hear that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort soon. I love being able to use the FastPass+ system to save time waiting in lines and enjoy more of the magic with my family. Any guest with a valid theme park admission ticket linked to their My Disney Experience account can reserve up to 3 initial experiences in 30 days in advance. If you are a guest staying at a select Disney Resort Hotel, you can make your selections 60 days prior to your check-in date.
    FastPass+ selections can be any combination of rides, attractions, character greeting experiences, shows and nighttime spectaculars that all count towards your limit. Once you have redeemed your initial 3 FastPass+ selections, you can make the fourth selection, as long as there is availability. I would suggest making your initial FastPass+ selections as early in the day as possible and then using your 4th FastPass+ experience for fireworks or nighttime entertainment if they are available.
    Another option for fireworks viewing is to attend a delicious dessert party. Not only will you enjoy some sweet treats, but you will have access to a VIP viewing area. Frozen Ever After Dessert Party at Epcot World Showcase and the Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are two of my favorites. Reservations are recommended and can be made in advance by calling (407) 939-5277.
    See ya real soon,
